Knocking off the dust, cleaning up the scrapes, bends are ok…just don’t break.

 

*right hook*

*KA-POWWW*

*slow motion hit the ground…slide in the dirt*

When you get knocked down

Crushed

You lay on the ground

Covered in dust

Scrapes

Bruises

You swallow slowly

Blink sporadic

Have a dead stare

Hoping when you get up

The silhouettes not there

You ache

Heartbreak…

*deep breath*

Roll to your side

Not dead

But hoping heaven would take

Dear God

Don’t let my psyche break

You sit up

Re-collect before

You get up

Thoughts hit hard

Brain plagued

Memories leave scars

Everything happened so fast

Freeway cars

Pain fades slow

Dying stars

It just takes time

Sit there and rewind

Stick to the rum

No need for wine

See where it went bad

Chest bleeding

Stabbed

*look around*

Bandage

Patch

Repair

Get up

Despite despair

Stand…

Still woozy

*right hook*

Was a doozy

Knees frail

Thoughts stale

Emo

Male

Stomach empty

Emotions

Plenty

Stay silent

Never violent

Quiet vent

Its all I need

Helps stop the bleed

Truthful

Crutches

Useful

Helps me regain my stance

Keep looking back

Second chance?

Second wind…

With broken sails

Id rather walk the plank

When all else fails

Bend

Never break

Spirit of nails

Leave the crutches

Dust off

Still bleeding

Its ok tho…

Im still breathing

Heart hurts

But…

Its still beating

Horrible sleep

But still eating

Stretch out

1 step…

2 step…

Begin to stride

Moments at a time

Feeling alive

You acknowledge the hurt

Swallow your pride

Then….

Learn to survive

Begin to revive

Start to thrive

Life’s my steering wheel

I CHOOSE TO DRIVE

Sun always shines

Clouds in-between

Nightmares

Mixed with dreams

Negative energy

Taste

Spit it out

Get it out

Played like a drum

Knocked down

Heart went numb

It starts with the get up

Walk

Then run

Forgive for love

No more hate

Knock down hurts

The get up feels great

Not running fast

But a generous pace

Lips sweet

Love her taste

Side tracked

Don’t forget about the race

Beautiful smile

Whatta waste

Life goes on

The past

Erase

Embrace

The space

Created

Might take a while to get

Re-situated

Gave her my all

Smothered her with kindness

Saturated

The get up is long

It’s a struggle

It’s a fight

Stay true to your word

And soon enough

Your wings will take flight

Standing again

Finish line in sight

Keep pushing thought the night

Stay strong in the light

Knowing that if I can get up

Everything will be alright

 

Knocking off the dust, cleaning up the scrapes, bends are ok…just don’t break…
